3.4 Testing AFP or CIFS

Before you install Novell Kanaka for Mac, you should test your Mac connectivity to your Novell Open Enterprise Server machine.

  1. From a Mac, log in with a local account.

  2. Press Command+K.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • For Macs connected via AFP, type afp://IP_ADDRESS, press Return, then click Connect.

    • For Macs connected via CIFS, type cifs://IP_ADDRESS, press Return, then click Connect.

  4. Log in as a user that has storage on the server.

    This should be a user that you intend to be a Kanaka for Mac user.

    After authentication, you should see volumes that are accessible via AFP or CIFS.
